  1. Recently we had a thread about a little boy who lost his life from a sign falling on him, in the past we've had articles and topics about signs that have fallen, fallen and killed, injured, or electrocuted. At our Sign Syndicate Sign Meet in Vegas I had the pleasure of Meeting Dr. Dydra DeLyser, whom Wade Swormstedt brought with him for us to meet. If you don't know there is a link here about her. She compiling and in the middle of writing a book about the history of Neon. Anyhow, she mentioned and sent me an article that was in the Signs of the Times many moons ago about a sign that saved the life of an individual who was unbeknown of something that was about to kill him. Anyway, thought I'd post this for your entertainment and curiosity. Since we always here "Death by Sign", we can now say "Saved By Sign". On a side note, as we commonly repeat/coin the phrase, "They don't build them like they use to". I wonder if that would stand today, and if this life would have been saved today with the way some signs are cheapened out. Imagine If we can put one of the 11 seven liquor store signs made from Magic Mouth out of jacksonville who swears with his fuzzy math that he can save 80% in energy consumption over Neon to his clients to test in this situation, that would be a test of time for sure.

  3. I don't know, drinking, 2am at night? Drugs? Followed by electrocution and fall? http://www.news.com....r-1226206901179 Australian teenager Jake Flannery dies after being electrocuted outside a Bali nightclub A FAULTY electric neon sign may have been responsible for the death of an Australian teenager outside a busy nightclub in the popular holiday area of Kuta in Bali. The 18-year-old, who was electrocuted about 2am (5am AEDT) this morning, has been named by police as Jake Mitchell Flannery, from NSW. Police have launched an investigation into the incident outside the Fourteen Roses Hotel and Joker Cafe on Jelan Legian in Kuta, on a section of the street under repair. A witness has told police the teenager was touching a neon sign attached to the cafe and a metal pole which was part of a roadworks site when he let out a scream before falling to the ground. He was with two friends at the time of his death in a busy nightclub district popular with Australians and other tourists. Kuta police chief Captain Gede Ganefo said the incident would be investigated, including whether those responsible for the construction work had failed to take proper care in ensuring the area was safe. However, a spokesman for the state electricity company told AAP that it was believed the neon sign attached to the Joker Cafe was the source of the surge in electricity that killed Mr Flannery. It's believed he came into contact with the neon box when he attempted to pass by a section of footpath that was obstructed by concrete slabs due to ongoing roadworks. "The Australian (was) electrocuted with neon installation of that cafe," Mastika, who goes by one name, told AAP. "We found that the cable to the neon box was scrapped," he said, meaning wires carrying the electric current were exposed. Mastika said it was the cafe's responsibility to ensure the cable was in good condition and not faulty. "The state electricity company's responsibility is from the network to the customer's electricity metre box. Beyond that is the customer's responsibility," he said. Australian media reports say Mr Flannery was from the NSW Central Coast and had been celebrating the end of year 12 in Bali. He had been a student at the selective Gosford High School, reports say. The bar manager, Agung Wirakusuma, told the Seven Network other tourists were to blame for the faulty sign. "Most of night people got very drunk and he banged the sign," he said. "Something broken inside of the sign." The two friends who were with the teenager tried unsuccessfully to revive him, Seven said. The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) has confirmed the incident. "Consular officers in Australia are providing assistance to the family of a teenager from New South Wales who died in Bali on 26 November as a result of accidental electrocution," a DFAT spokesman said in a statement. "Staff from the Australian consulate in Bali are providing consular assistance to the friends of the teenager." Mr Flannery's body has been taken to a hospital in Denpasar.
  4. Worker Electrocuted Outside Centerville Bank Master electrician dies working on sign Published : Wednesday, 12 Oct 2011, 12:54 PM CDT CENTERVILLE, Minn. - A man who was doing maintenance work on a bank sign in Centerville, Minn, was electrocuted Wednesday. He was a 47-year-old master electrician from White Bear Lake, Minn., who worked at L & D Sign, which is located in Stillwater. Paramedics, police and firefighters all responded to Central Bank, located at at 7111 21st Avenue, around noon. Anoka County dispatchers confirmed the worker was dead despite his coworker's efforts to save him. The victim was pronounced dead at the scene. His identity has not been released. Centennial Fire District Chief Jerry Streich told the Star Tribune the upper part of the sign displaying the bank's name was not lighting. Streich said the worker was looking at a control box when the electrocution happened. Firefighters cut a hole in the sign to get the unresponsive worker out and lowered him to the ground. Medical personne alsol tried to revive him. Police say weather was not a factor in the accident, as it was raining. The accident will be investigated by OSHA and the exact cause of the death will be determined by the Anoka County Medical Examiner’s Office. <object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" id="video" width="320" height="280" data="http://www.myfoxtwincities.com/video/videoplayer.swf?dppversion=11212"><param'>http://www.myfoxtwincities.com/video/videoplayer.swf?dppversion=11212"><param value="http://www.myfoxtwincities.com/video/videoplayer.swf?dppversion=11212" name="movie"/><param value="&skin=MP1ExternalAll-MFL.swf&embed=true&adSizeArray=300x240&adSrc=http%3A%2F%2Fad%2Edoubleclick%2Enet%2Fadx%2Ftsg%2Ekmsp%2Fnews%2Fdetail%3Bdcmt%3Dtext%2Fxml%3Bpos%3D%3Btile%3D2%3Bfname%3Dhugo%2Dbank%2Delectrocution%2Doct%2D12%2D2011%3Bloc%3Dsite%3Bsz%3D320x240%3Bord%3D660921458257136100%3Frand%3D0%2E1488598645626671&flv=http%3A%2F%2Fwww%2Emyfoxtwincities%2Ecom%2Ffeeds%2FoutboundFeed%3FobfType%3DVIDEO%5FPLAYER%5FSMIL%5FFEED%26componentId%3D136064769&img=http%3A%2F%2Fmedia2%2Emyfoxtwincities%2Ecom%2F%2Fphoto%2F2011%2F10%2F12%2Felectrician102111%5Ftmb0003%5F20111012220054%5F640%5F480%2EJPG&story=http%3A%2F%2Fwww%2Emyfoxtwincities%2Ecom%2Fdpp%2Fnews%2Fhugo%2Dbank%2Delectrocution%2Doct%2D12%2D2011&category=video&title=Electrician%20Electrocuted%20in%20Centreville&oacct=foximfoximkmsp,foximglobal&ovns=foxinteractivemedia&headline=Worker%20Electrocuted%20Outside%20Centerville%20Bank" name="FlashVars"/><param value="all" name="allowNetworking"/><param value="always" name="allowScriptAccess"/></object><p style="width:320px"><a href="http://www.myfoxtwincities.com/dpp/news/hugo-bank-electrocution-oct-12-2011">Worker Electrocuted Outside Centerville Bank: MyFoxTWINCITIES.com</a></p>
